Group Discovery Days

Beavers, Brownies, Cubs, Rainbows and other community groups can Go Wild! on a day of discovery here at DZC!



Due to Covid-19 we have temporarily suspended our Educational Workshop Programme and are therefore unable to offer school & group visits to the Zoo & Castle that include a workshop. We hope to be able to re-introduce our workshop programme as soon as it safe to do so.


Please contact for information on self-guided visits.


The workshops detailed in the following pages are from our 2019/20 programme and are for reference only.  UPDATED 02/04/21.



Set in a 40 acre woodland hillside, our zoo surrounds an 11th century castle and is home to many of the world’s most endangered species.  With our daily programme of talks and walk through animal exhibits including Lemur Wood, Castle Creatures and Lorikeet Lookout, Dudley Zoo is the ideal venue for a group “Discovery Day” out.
